"...it's changed my life"
"I've been using [Brain Fitness Pro] now for almost a year and have noticed some
wonderful changes in my abilities... [I've had] success in learning how to play the drums; this was impossible a year ago.
Again, thank you for such a wonderful program, it's changed my life!
- John, San Diego
"This is incredible."
"I have done the first 13 tests. I used to lose at computer chess on level 4. I am now beating level 6. I also feel things improving at work. This is incredible."
- Clay, Texas, Trial Lawyer
"I was pretty astounded by the results..."
"for the past year I had been studying to retake my MCAT's.
I used [Brain Fitness Pro] for 6 months, while I studied the exam material. My score jumped from a 27 to a 34.
I was pretty astounded by the results.
I definitely have to attribute some of the success to your program."
- Anson, Colorado
"I'm very satisfied with the training."
"I took a Mensa home test prior to the training and didn't pass.... Then I did the full training course, took the actual Mensa test, and got in! I'm very satisfied with the training."
- Anne, Harvard, MD
"[My] full scale IQ has been verified as 151 [21 points above the level for Mensa qualification]."
"I'm so glad that I've been training with the Dual N-back task. I received the results of my IQ test from my psychologist the other day. According to the WAIS-III test I completed; my full scale IQ has been verified as 151. Prior to the two months of training, Mensa admissions had rejected me based on their admission test. I recommend the training as an excellent tool for anyone interested in personal growth and realizing their potential."
- Lloyd, Florida
"Since starting the Brain Fitness Pro program, I have been going through a personal renaissance..."
"My increased ability to correlate short term memory facts, events, and ideas has resulted in awareness of possibilities that I would never have noted before - it is a different quality of consciousness, more synthetic. I am more alert, more conscious - myself, only enhanced.
"I was frustrated and felt inadequate - at first. Be patient - within 5 sessions my status fluctuated consistently between 2 and 3 n-back and by the 10th, I am at 3, solidly (triumphantly!)
"An unforseen consequence of the improvements is an increased self-confidence arising from the realization that I am more in control information - better able to both interpolate and extrapolate. This affects my business, interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships. The latter most extraordinarily of all, giving me a meta-awareness of myself in situ that lets me step back and choose responses deliberately, rather than reactionarily. The ramifications of this are only beginning to be revealed."
- Brett, New Jersey, Engineer
"He was amazed at his improvement in both visual and auditory memory in just these two sessions..."
"I don't usually do testimonials, but in this case I'll make an exception. I bought your Brain Fitness Pro as a gift for my husband. He is a doctor and is always interested in things related to increasing IQ and memory. He used the program as directed for 19 days, then took a few days off and used it another 19 days. He was amazed at his improvement in both visual and auditory memory in just these two sessions. I asked him what most impressed him about the system and he highlighted two things in particular. First, not only did his scores improve rapidly, but even after taking several weeks off he can pick up just where he left off when he plays the "game" again. In other words, the results seem permanent. Second, and most unexpectedly, is the improvement he noted in learning to play the guitar. Almost immediately, his hand-eye coordination soared and again the results seem permanent. My husband highly recommends your product, but cautions that one must put forth great efforts and concentration to really achieve the most from the program. He will not allow himself to be disturbed while practicing the Brain Fitness Pro program."
- Melissa, Mississippi
"Your product is great."
"Your product is great. I am not as smart as some of the people on the blog, but what matters is that I am constantly improving with the occasional step back. I started at 2.00 and I am now at 2.95 after 25 sessions. I constantly score perfectly at the level 2, and I now feel that level 3 is about to cave in. Level 4 is still very challenging. I find it difficult to concentrate, sometimes looking at the screen and saying to myself "what am I doing staring at this screen?" so then I regroup and continue.
It is true that there is a noticeable improvement after the first 20 sessions, but it is important to continue. Some people have faster brains that others, and also, at 58 you need brain stimulation like this to make sure your grey matter does not turn into mush."
- Robert, Maryland
"I think your product is better than all others I've tried..."
"I think your product is better than all others I've tried. The biggest difference I've noticed academically is in math class. I think it helped so much because the program makes you think of two things simultaniously to complete one demanding task (audio/visual stimuli). In math, you have to focus on both the big picture and small details, and by doing this program daily, you get better at understanding how to perform tasks that involve both right and left brain thinking. It's really helped."
- John, Arizona
"With MindSparke I quickly noticed I was thinking a whole lot better."
"I've tried other products, but with MindSparke I quickly noticed I was thinking a whole lot better. I was better able to concentrate and focus on the task at hand without being distracted."
- Mike, Illinois

Brain Training Report – Zach
Stage: 3 Session number: 18 Average n-back: 9.35 I’m starting to think I’m not doing this right… I’ve had a lot of mind chatter doing this training since I picked up the course–now doing it consistently again after taking about a month off from mid-May to mid-June. About Session 17 the thoughts became so distracting [...]
Brain Training Report – Travis – Stage 3, Session 18
Stage: 3 Session number: 18 Average n-back: 4.5 I’ve got enough sessions logged now that I’ve noticed a trend. My biggest gains seem to come after a period of several days loss. I don’t think this is just b/c of the decline making it easier to have larger leaps. It feels like there is some [...]
Brain Training Report – Ezhil – Stage 3, Session 2
Stage: 3 Session number: 2 Average n-back: 2.55 Second day today on stage 3. Performance was pretty fluid at N-2, but N-3 is quite a struggle with remembering the sequences. Scores have marginally improved from day 1 to day 2 though, so hopefully there would be more gains in the next few days. MindSparke Brain [...]
Brain Training Report – Josh – Stage 3, Session 17
Stage: 3 Session number: 17 Average n-back: 4.65 Over the last few days I’ve applied a technique that I use in music to play music faster technically. I warm-up by alternating every day between Double Ahead and Double Switchback. While in one of the two stages I start at N-2, then N-4, then N-3, then [...]
Brain Training Report – Travis – Stage 3, Session 15
Stage: 3 Session number: 15 Average n-back: 4.4 No improvement in score today even with 20 min of exercise before followed by the 8 min meditation recording. I don’t really feel like I hit the ceiling though. One thing I noticed that I think was starting to help: I count sequences each time equal to [...]
Brain Training Report – Shariff – Stage 3, Session 1
Stage: 3 Session number: 1 Average n-back: 2 Definitely very difficult. I have a hard time doing the n=3. MindSparke Working Memory Training This post was submitted by Shariff.
Brain Training Report – Travis – Stage 3, Session 14
Stage: 3 Session number: 14 Average n-back: 4.5 Took the weekend off. Came in this morning and stopped a 2 session micro-slide posting a new top score. N=3 went from challenging to easy. N=4 went from really hard to pretty easy. N=5 has gone from impossible to less impossible. Occasionally I get to stay at [...]
Brain Training Report – Shariff – Stage 2, Session 5
Stage: 2 Session number: 5 Average n-back: 5 I am really feeling my brain pulsing and feeling so drained! I never knew it could give me a slight headache. I am trying to get as many right in n=5. MindSparke Brain Training Software This post was submitted by Shariff.
Brain Training Report – Travis – Stage 3, Session 11
Stage: 3 Session number: 11 Average n-back: 4.4 I Squeaked up to a 4.4 on my 44th birthday! It’s weird the way the auditory memory is more sticky than the visual. It seems like the process of updating my visual sequence each time is less reliable and I tend to forget what comes next after [...]
DAY 2 with a cold

I am thrilled that I was introduced to
Brain Fitness Pro! At 61, with a history of head injury, improving my memory is important to me. Since the head injury my memory had been waning and my ability to focus challenged.
After reading The Brain that Changes Itself by Doidge it was clear that the brain can be exercised and improved. My search for a computer program led me to Brain Fitness Pro. It is low cost and seems very effective. There is no question it is challenging - in my first few sessions I wondered if it was possible at all for me to simply remember 2 numbers and sounds back, but via the Brain Fitness Pro Blog Martin encouraged me and I saw daily improvements.
I am now 22 sessions into the program I get perfect scores in 4 and am practicing at level 6; I am thrilled at my progress! It is not easy - it takes work - but not much time. Each session can be broken up into several periods. The program is very user friendly!
In real life I am more confident about my memory, more focused and in general feel self-assured. I recently took a test for a job, could focus on long complicated problems and did very well. I am looking forward to retaking my IQ test to determine how I have improved. I do think I may be addicted to this Brain Fitness Pro practice...and it is a joy to share and learn from other Brain Fitness Pro users that report on the Blog!

Training with Brain Fitness Pro comes within my Top Ten best life choices.
I started at n=2 with great confusion, and I am currently at n=8 with increased confidence. My concentration and working memory were out of shape because of a period of clinical depression. The Brain Fitness Pro training does seem to have improved both my concentration and short-term memory.
Further, I'd say that my general confidence and my general self-control, willpower, or volition have increased as well.
I seem to be better able to accomplish tasks and overcome inertia. It seems to me that Brain Fitness Pro provides a salutary effect on the strength, power, and stamina of my mental muscle.
Further still, my capacity to remain in the present moments may have improved as well.
For sure, these claims are subjective at very best, except of course for my increase from n=2 to n=8, and my increase in my numeric aural digit span from just above average to a span of 8 numeric digits.
Over fifty-hours (so far!) of satisfying training for less than $50.00. That's value for money.
